Architecture Competition Iceland Greenhouse Restaurant Honorable mention - Kantinan Na Nakorn, Sasipim Sivaroroskul and Theethaj Pholampaisathit

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "Iceland Greenhouse Restaurant" competition – Kantinan Na Nakorn, Sasipim Sivaroroskul and Theethaj Pholampaisathit from Thailand!

Honorable mention from Thailand

Sasipim and Theethaj both studied and graduated from the School of Architecture and Design, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT). Kantinan is also an architectural graduate student from Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT), Thailand. We met each other in an architectural firm during an internship, although we have different styles of work, we seemed to get along very well and formed a compatible team.

Kantinan takes an interest in the sequence and narrative of spaces in architecture by looking at it as a whole, analyzing and questioning the possibilities in alternative ways. He is eager to face new challenges thus, it makes him developed even more. Used to participate in Asia Young Designer Award (AYDA) in the topic of AMPLIFYING EMPATHY THROUGH DESIGN 2021.

Sasipim enjoys focusing on human behavior and activities, also urban and community scale projects. Bit by bits of details that formed up to an architecture triggers her interest. Architecture related to cultures and tradition reflects well on how people act and behave which can be called as a core of architecture. She believes that architecture can suit, support or enhance people's lifestyles. Previous projects are mostly for communities and public purposes; Reactivating Nang Loeng ancient area Khon (actor’s mask) and sewing techniques, showing in Venice art Biennale 2019 Exhibition.

Theethaj born in Bangkok and growing up in Dunedin, Theethaj “Tyr“ Pholampaisathit. During his studies, He has participated in several studio programs including a semester-long exchange program in architecture at Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) in Tokyo and design lab workshop at Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT). Theethaj has also previously interned and worked in many Bangkok-Based firms including CHAT, STU/D/O and POAR. Theethaj explores the bones of identity in architecture and is now working as a junior architect in P.O.AR.

Currently after the graduation Sasipim and Kantinan are working together with a group of friends as a self-employed architect in 11.29 (Xi.xxixarc). We enjoy exploring architecture in broaders ways. For us architecture is like movies, story telling explains through composition of scenarios, which is integration among characterized elements that contributed to an unexpected experimental development. 11.29 had done various types of works including houses, studios, installation and cafe etc.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture is everywhere, it doesn’t need to always appear as a space or places. Architecture has no boundaries, it can also act as a medium connecting people with both different and same interests to gather and form new activities and communities. It seems to us that architect plays a role in giving opportunities to the society by providing alternative ways to solve problems and create new appropriate solutions.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

As young architects, architectural competitions give us opportunities to broaden ideas and it is a great exercise for us to use what we have learned in university to apply in real-life scenarios. It escalates our passion, raises our inspirations and makes us eager to attend more. Participating in competitions not only makes us learn more but also seeing other previous projects of other participants widen our perspectives towards architecture.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

In our point of view, we start by selecting competitions that trigger our enthusiasm and question ourselves is it right for us? And do we really want to discuss further more? Every competition always comes with obstacles, things that are best to be done is planning and discussing with your team. Moreover, competitions will boost your capabilities and shape you as an architect.
